Two NYPD Sergeants Shot, Wounded

Two police sergeants were shot, one fatally, in an exchange of gunfire on Friday with a man suspected of breaking into a woman’s home, authorities said. The gunman also was killed.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the New York Police Department sergeant’s death, saying in a statement the sergeant had “made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.” The other sergeant, who was shot in the leg, was undergoing treatment at a local hospital, said Cuomo, a Democrat.

The gunman, Manuel Rosales, fired on officers who had stopped his car following a brief pursuit near a ballfield, a law enforcement official said.

A woman who had an order of protection against Rosales had called 911 after he broke into her home and stayed for hours, giving police a description of his car, the official said.
